Science and Values in Peirce and Dewey: A Conference in Honour of Angus Kerr-Lawson

April 25-27, 2016

This conference will bring together scholars at the intersection of pragmatism and philosophy of science to consider Peirce’s and Dewey’s contributions to the study of science and values. Over three days, scholars will offer individual papers and panel/roundtable discussions devoted to both the role of and relationship between science and values in Peirce and Dewey, and to the ways in which contemporary scholarship on science and values draws, or ought to draw, on the work of these classic American pragmatists. Topics will range from the role of values in the natural and social sciences to pragmatic approaches to contemporary science policy.
